Product Description:

Kel Gilligan is one tough little dude. They call him "the boy without fear." His "super scary stunts" include everything from eating broccoli to using the potty, dressing himself, taking a bath, not interrupting his mother while she talks on the phone, and going to bed without first checking the room for monsters. This last "stunt" doesn't go well and Kel ends up in bed with his parents, but saves face by declaring that he is there to protect them. The author and illustrator roll out all the stops to keep things crazed. For example,a video-camera display to capture the endurance test of the potty. Some illustrations simulate a video-camera display to heighten the dramatics, while the family gasps in awe: "He knows no fear!" A fantasy romp destined to please preschoolers and parents alike who are faced with getting through the day-to-day tasks that at times feel insurmountable. Preschool-Grade 2. --Randall Enos
